Overview: Youth soccer tryouts preparation, tryout dates and times, and how to register

With the new soccer season right around the corner, you might be contemplating which competitive soccer program is the right fit for your child. There are many things to consider before enrolling your child into a program. We addressed a few aspects of this in our last article, but want to talk a bit about preparing for tryouts.

Finding a Good Youth Soccer Program for Tryouts:

Before your child tries out for a soccer team, it’s important to know if the actual program is right for your child.

You can ask current players and family about the program’s training reputation. Players and families are not just a team — everyone should be part of the program’s community. This is something that USA Stars Academy takes pride in.

A good soccer program, for example, focuses on supporting and mentoring aspiring players during tryouts and off the field. Staff will help players create a solid foundation through soccer fundamentals and appropriate techniques that build confidence in the sport.

What is USA Stars Competitive Soccer?

Competitive soccer is the next level of development for players who are interested in a more challenging environment. With our academy, players follow a carefully crafted custom curriculum that builds each year with a progression of skills, techniques and tactics as they develop in each age group.

Teams are coached and trained by our professional coaching staff in an intimate team setting so appropriate attention is given to each player — including your little one.

In addition to our regular training sessions, USA Stars Academy also offers programs for our players including: strength & conditioning, speed & agility, and striker training.
